COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The hallmark of Belgian Triples are fruity esters balanced with a dry finish that fall in the range of 7-9% ABV. And for this year’s 19th anniversary celebratory brew, we decided to create a stylistically perfect beer—something unusual considering our penchant for producing eccentric beers that defy styles or categories.

In excited anticipation of 20 years and the new brewery, we concocted this very traditional, yeast driven, dry and fruity Tripel.

Hop Variety: Bravo, Czech Saaz
Malt Variety: Two-row barley, Wheat, Oats
Yeast Variety: Achouffe

keanex (1484) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - JUN 10, 2013
Bottled April 2012.
Appearance: The body is a beautiful amber hue with sediment in the semi-clear body. The head is short with rather poor retention.
Aroma: The aroma is clean and enticing with hints of banana, subtle spices and a touch of pear.
Taste: The intro is fruity right away reminding me of either an apple or a pear, quickly the flavor becomes chalky with light banana and slight spices. The finish becomes dry and a bit watery. There’s some off-flavors in here that remind me of water with a slight chemically flavor. Not digging this.
Palate: Light to medium bodied, soft carbonation.
Overall: There’s something off here, it reminds me of poor quality tap water. Not interested in this.

Scopey (7097) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2013
Bottle at Bruce’s, thanks to Ken. It pours cloudy golden yellow with a medium white head. The nose is candy, spice, earth, hay, icing sugar, apricot and peach. The taste is bitter-sweet, orange, apricot, peach, spice, earth, pear drops, melon and sherbet with dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Hides abv pretty well. Ok, but nothing special.

JaBier (4964) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JUN 7, 2013
Bottle shared by a friend. Opaque orange in appearance with a thin white head. Malty and slightly herbal nose with banana, honey and tropical fruit notes. Malty and peppery flavor with a banana and mango finish.

DiarmaidBHK (3467) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 4, 2013
Bottle from Bruisin Ales. Pours golden with an inch of,white foam. Big fruit and yeast notes on the nose. The yeast on the tongue is balanced with a nice hop finish which adds a touch of dryness. Very nice

MadRobin (2010) - Silver Spring, USA - MAY 31, 2013
Poured from 22 oz. bottle after cellaring for (oops, longer than intended) 8 months. Clear, yellow gold with a 3-finger off-white head and very good lacing. Aroma of banana, grain, spice, yeast, light citrus and pineapple. Taste of grain, light citrus, tropical fruit, spice, yeast and mildly bitter earthy pine. Medium body and medium body and with a soft, pleasant mouthfeel. The unintentionally long cellaring certainly did no harm to this fine American example of a Belgian-style tripel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

seymour (1460) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - MAY 29, 2013
Tasted on tap in a fluted tulip at Three Kings, thanks Brett! It poured a slightly hazy golden colour with thick, creamy, long lasting white foam and lace. Grainy, reminiscent of crackers and freshly baked French bread, tart and fruity, faint noble hops balance, with strong Belgian yeast notes: fruity, spicy, peppery. Despite the light colour, there were nonetheless subtle and complex malty and caramelly notes. I swear even hints of Brett, reminiscent of Goose Island Matilda or a well-aged Orval. Tart and slightly barn-yardy. Light body, strong carbonation, dry finish, highly "digestive." Really delicious.

’Paul takes a brown shower’ tasting at Bruce’s pad. Hazy gold beer, little white head. Light palate, dry with prickly carbonation. Sweetish malt, vague touch of honey. Typical tripel spice. Light ripe fruits in the background. Dry finish. Okay.

DavoleBomb (1467) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 25, 2013
Poured into a goblet. 3.0 A: Moderately hazed yellow wheat color. Just a whisp of fizzy white head formed then fell just as quickly. 4.0 S: This is a nice, earthy tripel. Not overly fruity like some - just right. Honey, pepper and clove spiciness dominate the nose. Hay and grassy hoppiness. Lightly floral with a dirty earthiness that I like a lot. Mildly yeasty. Overall, solid. 3.5 T: Like the nose, this is earthy and spicy. Honey, pepper, and clove are again the leading flavors. Hay, grassy, flowers, earth to follow. Not a lot of complexity, but what is there is done quite well. 4.0 M: Light to lighter medium body. Good carbonation level for the style, but on the lower end. Spritzy, light, and fluffy. Good here. 3.5 D: Good overall effort. Lacking in the complexity department, but other than that I have no complaints. Serving type: bottle 11-11-2012 03:53:10

This an excellent tripe,. Looks and smells light. The flavor is simple but easy to drink and tasty. Nothing out of the ordinary but done well.
